my partner in crime Matt and I are back with another razorcake self-reflection funtime podcast! recorded on V-Day so we’re extra jaded, there’s talk of masturbation, phone sex, and other nonsense in between excellent punk tunes. also Matt’s intro is brilliant (because duh) so read on!
“You’re bound to get idears if you go thinkin’ about stuff.”
This podcast was recorded on Valentine’s Day, which is a holiday that’s more pointless than Easter. A good holiday is one that resurrects the past and inserts it into the present. Remembrance can be a revolutionary action. The resurrection of the history of the oppressed (or suppressed history) is the foundation of political progress. This is what should fill our calendars; not fucking plush teddy bears holding a plastic heart full of jelly beans. I’d like to elaborate on this and tie it in with music, but I have records that need listening to. Anyway, I’ll say this: when I’m angry I like to listen to music. It allows me to wag my mind finger at strawmen. It’s the aloe on the sunburn of existence. Jeez, I need to sleep.
So, goodbye valentine, goodbye guilt, goodbye god, and goodbye Alaska.
